Finalists revealed for Fintech Business awards

ifa's sister publication Fintech Business has announced the finalists of its inaugural awards, following an overwhelming number of high quality award submissions. 

The awards will recognise outstanding innovation and entrepreneurship in the Australian fintech sector, and identify some of the leading individuals and organisations making a contribution to the burgeoning fintech community.

Since opening for entry last month, Fintech Business has received a significant number of high-calibre submissions, both from those who represent fintech start-ups as well as more established providers and financial service providers that have wholly embraced fintech innovation.

The finalists have been selected for their ability to demonstrate commitment to paving the way for achievement and advancement in their organisations.

The winners of the Fintech Business Awards will be selected by a panel of soon-to-be-announced expert judges and announced at a premium cocktail event on 24 February 2017 at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney.
